1.  Rules/Procedures

1.1  Update, Please!

  1. Remember, it is up to you to either add or let us know if you need an animal added to these pages. You can request the leadership do this is you provide information in our maintenence thread.
  2. Please keep the total word count of your description below 150 words. If you need more space, use an NPC Template or your personal Wiki page. This page is only meant to be a brief catalog of your companion animal. o:
  3. If your character leaves Salsola, or is placed on NPC status and moves to the SL Trading Outpost, their animals will be removed from this list. Make sure to keep your own copy of the information you put here, in case it is thus removed.
  4. Please note that the art made for the below animals is done for fun, and as a courtesy, by Alaine. They are done in her own time, for no cost, and under no duress. If you have added an animal to the below list, it is likely that art will be made of it for you at her earliest convenience - However, this art is done for 'Souls and Salsolan use only. Please do not use it on any other sites. Please do not modify it in any way. It may be used on your character's personal wiki page and in their on-boards pages, but please note if your character permanently leaves Salsola, it may be requested that you cease using the artwork.

1.2  Animal Residences

Animals may be kept in various areas: there are communal stables; another option is to allow your animal to simply meander around Salsola. This is acceptable where the animal is not overly aggressive or dangerous; animals which are dangerous or aggressive must be kept quartered.

2.  Owned Animals

  1. These animals belong to a particular character; they are non-canine cNPCs (companion NPCs) of their Salsolan owners. Don't powerplay: ask the player before directly controlling or referencing their NPC.

2.1  Horses / Riding Animals

  1. These horses live in various places and are not sorted by their usual residence or location.
  2. You do not need to fill in the About section if you have information available elsewhere about your animals on the Wiki. Just link to that instead; it's easier to update in the long run.
  3. Horses are listed by owner's rank + alphabetical order!
